I really liked this poster when i saw it so i decided to make a cover with it. I tried to match the gradient as best i could for the back. I used two different titles. The normal one from the movie and a cracked one,thought i'd see which one everyone liked.

I wanted kind of a stone rock looking text but i don't have a good font for that. Instead i tried that cracked one which looks more like a spider web than cracks.

Thanks:



the vinette's still a little out, you need the cyan to hold for a little longer, other than that solid start. Perhaps leaving the title solid would match the vectorised front imagery a little better, particularly on the spine.

I'll try to fix the gradient. You're saying essentially that the blue on the bottom needs to extend further up right? I think what i may try with the text is simliar to their faces on the front. See how the background sorta bleeds onto their faces?

Thanks MHD,i'll try that font out and see what everyone thinks.

Does anyone know an easy way to make a silhouette? Say if i find a pic of a palm tree that works how would i make it black and still retain the overall shape and detail.

depends on the pic. But an easy way might be to desaturate the pic and turn the contrast up high and/or brightness down, then invert the pic if applicable. I would have to see the pic to know for sure tho.

how i do it is get a pic,create a new layer then fade the background pic slightly,then use point to point to draw the shape and fill it in..it can be very effective(its how i did my vertigo cover)

as for the title i still prefer the second one,but thought that was the kind of font you were looking for (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/lol.gif)

Here's how I would fix this,

1.Use the Select>Colour range tool with a low bias to select the black and white elements from the front

2.Then paste them on a new layer,

3.Next turn off the visibility of tht e old fron poster layer,

4.Delete the incorrect gradient from the back

5.Make a new gradient fill or perhaps a grunged textures with light to dark gradient layer mask

6.move the layer in point 2 above the new gradient or texture.

7.Sit back open a beer and smile at your fixed cover (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

That will be far easier than trying to match the exact gradient from the original poster and it gives you choice for a new colour scheme (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Trace a path around the object you want in silhouette, then make the seletion and click the add vector mask tool, reverse your selection by holding ctrl+shift+i is you mask the wrong bit:)

Thatnks skally,i don't know why i didn't think of that. Would be alot easier than trying to match it. Might even experiment with a different back ground. I kind of like the tropical scheme it has though. Thats why i wanted to look for a different font,to me the normal one dosen't fit with look of the front.
